This Alvarinho wine has a lovely bright citric colour with intense aromas of tropical fruits and some hints of apricot, which add to the complexity of the bouquet. Its good structure, balanced by an excellent acidity leads to a fresh wine with a pleasant dry finish and long after-taste.
An old grape variety of exceptional quality, deservedly famed for the varietal wines it produces in the Vinho Verde region, specifically in the two sub-regions of Monção and Melgaço. Increasingly it is blended with Loureiro in most Vinho Verde white wines, Alvarinho has a highly characteristic floral and fruity profile with notes of lime tree, balm mint, honeysuckle, peach, grapefruit and apple, all well-married with the high acidity typical of crisp white wines from north-west Portugal. The grapes yield balanced wines with good structure and moderate alcohol.
